Subject: second set jam
i am a sucker for the arrows of course, but there's also the Bertha opener, Playing in the second slot with a jam into Ship of Fools! 20 minutes in and Jerry still wanted his second set "warm up tune." SOF gives way to a nice jam in the Playin' vein...... this is a nice recording. i think the drums sound amazing (listen to Billy's Hi-hat on playin from about the 6:00 mark), all the instruments are in balance. phil is there. Jerry starts thinking about Ship at the 8 minute mark in playin.... it is sweet to hear them work their way into it.... and WOW, Jerry sounds like he is in great voice, such a sweet tone and lucid in the delivery.
BUT it's billy and MICKEY that power this jam tonight, a contender for tour highlight... they would sound really together and spot on the whole tour -- while the frontmen went through the ups and downs, the guys doing the work in back didn't miss a beat.....
after the frenetic jam out of SOF and before the very short, mellow drums/space, we get BRENT JAM #1 (he would linger throughout the tour before drums, blissfully jamming away)... the move into The Wheel is really sweet, they tease it along in a very gentle way, interplay between Jerry and Brent mostly...... Jerry shines through the rest of the set, another well sung Wharf Rat -- Bobby seems to have no interest in singing anymore until Good Lovin comes around to close the set. (short but sweet, i am giving this jam a solid 4.5 stars)

This dude in front of me had his Dad who disliked us doing doobage Oops sorry dude! Then Dad pulled out a Briar and sparked up some vanilla i think it was. dad liked the "gospel" part of Wharf Rat..and seemed a sport about the other f*cker line (or his son said something to him just then haha)
Another funny dude was telling his girlfriend, "sometimes the bandplayes till 4 a.m.!"
So of course the show ends at like ten twenty
